Entering college can be confusing. Salt Lake Community College hopes the Dream Center in West Valley City and the Center’s website helps students who may not have proper documentation, have pending immigration status, identify themselves as DREAMers or have recently been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.
Helping students is our highest priority at SLCC. We hope this information shows you how to access educational resources, find support and allies on campus, and navigate SLCC procedures so you can be successful in your educational pursuits.
The Dream Center at Salt Lake Community College works holistically with undocumented students and mixed-status families from college access to graduation and or transfer.

· Provides individualized advising and scholarship support for current and future undocumented students at SLCC.
· Promotes campus-wide advocacy and trainings SLCC students, faculty, staff and administration.

“I first sought The Dream Center looking for resources to pay for college. Working with Brenda Santoyo at The Dream Center, I have found a connection to others like me; I was reminded that I am not alone, something that can be easy to forget. Through the Dream Center I have found a place in which I feel a sense of belonging and family. Additionally, I have received help from the Dream Center’s resources, with the help of the center’s Writing and Rhetoric Fellow, Cristina Guerrero, I was awarded a full scholarship for Spring 2020."
